I have been SO BAD about updating. Serious failage here, guys. While I'm sure you're all pining away over the lack of sparkling wordplay and rapier wit you've come to expect from this blog (HAH) I am back, and will update with some regularity from now on.
I graduated from treatment yesterday, thanks to insurance (eff you sideways, United Behavioral Health). We had a beautiful, emotional celebration for me and another woman who entered treatment along with me, and now? I'm excited to be out and getting back to my life.
But Jesus Tapdancing Christ I have SO MANY FREE EVENINGS NOW.
I am going to face a few major triggers in the next few weeks, including:
-Christmas, where we dutifully celebrate the birth of Santa by gorging ourselves on a big fuckoff goose
-The New Year. (Oh that ubiquitous New Year survey is a'comin' to this blog soon, folks, don't you worry. Don't pay for the whole seat because you'll only need the EDGE.)
-My 21st birthday, which my mother has planned out to include three days of intensely vigorous exercise, with hardly any time for, you know. Drinking alcohol. I wanted to go out for a nice dinner with my family and then maybe barhop with some friends and my sister and flirt with some cute girls for free birthday drinks, but she spent an obscene amount of money on this ski trip for my older cousin's birthday in, like, November, and decided that that's what I was doing as well. Oh well.
-Getting my wisdom teeth out.
It's going to be hard not to have group support during this period... So at the very least I will be updating my journal and hoping somebody takes a peek every once in awhile.
I am cooking lunch for a friend this afternoon and my girlfriend has been "hinting strongly" at me to clean the damn house for like two days, and I can no longer feign not knowing English, so better get on that shit before she devours my head in a frightening rage that cannot be plied with wine nor Prozac. (Ha! Just kidding honey!) (Secret eyebrow raise to you guys NO I AM NOT.)
Uh, but first off, I have to show you something that's blowing my mind a little. Here, look:( A ComparisonCollapse )
Love you alllll.
